Marvel fans really want Henry Cavill to play this MCU character, he’s not Superman
Will Henry Cavill be donning a different red and blue suit soon? Marvel fans really want Henry Cavill to play this MCU character, he’s not Superman
Really, only the most dedicated Henry Cavill fan can tell you how many times he played Superman without the project ever coming to fruition. Now that James Gunn seems to be taking Superman and DC in general in a different direction, some Marvel and Cavill fans are on the way to fanning him as a certain British superhero.
Of course, the hero is many Cavill fans The former Superman actor is in demand to play the burly Captain Britain. He certainly has the build and looks to play the larger-than-life British hero, but right now there’s no indication from Marvel Studios that they’re interested in Cavill or that Captain Britain will be in the MCU.
The closest thing to Captain Britain in the MCU was in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness with Peggy Carter as Captain Carter. Although the name isn’t the same, she still has the Super Soldier Serum to thank for her powers. Plus both her dress and shield are covered with the Union Jack.
Continuing with the example of the Multiverse of Madness, there is a huge case of fan casting with John Krasinski as Reed Richards. MCU fans on Twitter and Reddit have been clamoring for Krasinski to become the leader of the Fantastic Four, and they finally got their wish. Until Wanda unceremoniously bares her entire being.
While there’s no certainty that Cavill or Captain Britain will make it to the MCU, it doesn’t seem entirely unlikely at this point.
